Mr. L.V. Marshall, Sr. was born on January 31, 1942 in Hewitt, Texas to Ed Marshall and Carrie Wells-Marshall.
Mr. Marshall joined Liberty Hill at an early age.
He attended the only school that was accepting African Americans and that was Moore High. In the year 1966, that’s when he met and married Cora Scott-Marshall and with this union, five children were born.
Mr. Marshall was a faithful member of the East Waco Lions Club for many years. He was a man of many talents and hobbies, but his main two hobbies were woodwork and C.B. radio!! On his C.B. radio, his name was “U.S. Marshall” or “The Golden Round”. He had a passion for working with wood. He worked and retired from Fleetwood. Despite him retiring from the work industry, that didn’t stop him from tinkering and tweaking anything as small as a toy for the grandbabies to repairing cars. Not only was he a great handyman but an awesome motivator. He spoke life into every situation, a caring husband, amazing father, great brother, loving uncle to many, and most definitely a protector.
Mr. Marshall not only was well known but loved by many. It didn’t matter if you knew him for years or just for a moment. He always left you with an expression on your face, hopefully, a friendly smile or chuckle.
Mr. Marshall is preceded in death by his father, Ed; mother, Carrie; brother, Willie Marshall; sister, Myrtle Stanford, son, Larry Scott, and his favorite nephew, Robert Stanford.
He leaves to cherish his memory: his loving wife of 55 years, Cora Marshall; his beautiful sister, Jennie V. Davison; one son, L. V. Marshall, Jr.; three daughters, LaDonna Marshall, Betty Smith and Terry Scott; three sisters-in-law, Evelyn (Searcy) Washington, Marla (Joe) Dawkins, and Joann (Roy) Heyd; one brother-in-law, Henry James, Jr., also his best friend and favorite cousin, James “Sonnie” Stewart; twelve grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; and including a host of nieces and nephews, relatives and friends.
